4.0 out of 5 stars A charming summer read. June 21, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
The Summer Prince gripped me from its surprise twist in the opening scene and then carried me off to fantastical settings with an intriguing dose of mythical lore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical Writing March 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Summer Prince is a short story by Carol Oates. Her lyrical writing sets the scene of the Beltaine celebration in a small Irish town years ago. Niamh is a 15 year-old sneaking around a party meant only for those 16 and older. A handsome stranger, a friend's unexpected cruelty, and the folklore of the Fae evoke a mysterious and satisfying YA romance in this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid imagery! March 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The Summer Prince by Carol Oates is a beautifully written tale, rich with Fae legend and vivid imagery. I've read all of Ms. Oates other works, and this short ranks right up there with her full length novels. She is an expert at painting pictures with words that allows the reader to feel like they're in the story, right along with the characters. A must read!

More About the Author

Carol Oates came into the world on Christmas morning, in an elevator. Raised just across the street from the childhood home of Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, it was only a matter of time before Carol's love of all things supernatural would emerge.

She began experimenting with fiction at school and keeps the notebook containing her first unpublished novel in her desk drawer. Over three decades later, all her stories still begin life scrawled on paper.

When not writing, Carol can be found exploring history with her son. Luckily, he shares her love of old buildings, castles, and tombs.
